Weather Update

The forcast in this article is outdated. It's warm, sunny, and clear for the rest of the weekend.

It’s that time of year again, and Whiskey Flat Days 2023 is less that a week away. And that means that the entire weekend is now in the ten-day forecast.

The river is running at over 500 cubic feet per second after early January storms, a welcome increase after months of running at around 130 CFS. The storm brought the Lake up from only about 6% of capacity to about 20% and left plenty of snow in the hills. Thanks to the rain, the area has also turned green with flowers starting to bloom, making for a beautiful backdrop for the festival.

The forecast is mild and mostly cloudy. Highs will be in low-to-mid 50s, with lows of around 34. On Sunday the clouds are expected to clear up for most of the day, making it the warmest day of the weekend at 55, but then it’ll cool down after all of the events of the weekend are over and there’s a chance of snow on Monday morning.

So be sure to bring a jacket. You might warm up walking around throughout the day, but you’ll probably want it early in the morning or later in the evening, and maybe when you sit down for a while at the rodeo.

Of course, a lot could change in ten days. Be sure to check the forecast again before heading out.
